I am Director of Programming at CNN International, where I help shape the daily newscasts we broadcast to more than 300 million households around the world.

Each day, I manage a newsroom of more than 100 producers, writers, copy editors and anchors at the network's global headquarters in Atlanta, overseeing live events and breaking news coverage.

I helped contribute to the network's coverage of the uprising in Egypt in 2011, which earned several of us Emmy Awards, and I was Supervising Producer in the control room during much of the network's coverage of the Israel-Hezbollah conflict in 2006, for which we won an Edward R. Murrow Award.

I have field produced several special events including three U.S. presidential elections, the CNN Freedom Project which spotlights modern-day slavery around the world, and the Virginia Tech school shootings. I have also produced a live town hall forum in front of a studio audience in Mumbai, India.

I graduated with a journalism degree from Indiana University following internships at WNDU-TV in South Bend, Ind., WFIU Radio in Bloomington, Ind., and WISH-TV in Indianapolis. I began my career at CNN Headline News as a Video Journalist, quickly moving my way up the writer and producer ranks.

I joined CNN International a few years later and eventually worked for four years at the network's London bureau. There I launched a European breakfast show as well as "International Correspondents" with Christiane Amanpour.

My passion for journalism isn't limited to television. As you will see here, I fully embrace social and digital media.

I currently reside in Los Angeles.

In the Press

For three consecutive presidential elections, I have produced a special series called "American Quest," where I travel the country with correspondent Richard Quest. Here's an article written about our latest adventure.

In the Field

For two years, I reported on Major League Baseball players who are trying to strike out modern-day slavery for our CNN Freedom Project series. Here's our latest report I produced and wrote.

In Hawaii

I have traveled extensively across the Aloha State, from Oahu to Maui to Kauai to the Big Island. Check out some of my photography of my recent visits, which proves you can never take a bad photograph in Hawaii.
